For starters, it depends on the condition and grade of the sheds:
Grade A: Antler in perfect condition, brown and beautiful, with no fading…no broken tines or chew marks…this year’s drop, antler picked up within a few weeks or months.
Grade B: Antler in good condition, still natural brown color, may be dull or faded on one side and slightly weathered, probably last year’s drop. May have slight broken tine or chip.
Grade C: Antler faded and weathered to white and chalky, maybe some green and chewed on by rodents, on the ground for 2 or 3 years.
